believe it was karl rove -- who has already spined a narrative that it was hurricane sandy that may have shifted if he loses. so they are beginning to create a conversation about what if romney loses, which to me is in direct contradiction to what they say their internal polls are saying. >> well, it will be an interesting night. we'll be here at 6:00 tomorrow. we'll be here all night long. catherine crier, dana milbank, michelle cottle, thank you for being here tonight. >>> out ranl jous lines in ohio and florida are not an accident, they are part of a deliberate attempt to depress the vote and democrats are fighting back. >>> plus, new ugly attacks in the final hour of the campaign. now republicans are accusing the president of attacking christian values. >>> also, from roe versus wade to planned parenthood, we'll talk to senator barbara boxer about what is really at stake for women in this campaign. you're watching a special edition of "politicsnation," live from democracy plaza here in new york's rockefeller center. >> and after all we've been through together, we can't give up now.
with president obama on hurricane sandy and voters are loving it. so why are republicans ignoring his example? >>> we'll tell you why mr. 47% really is mr. 47%. you'll love this story. >>> plus, speaker boehner got a big surprise today. why are naked people in his office? stay with us. sometimes what we suffer from is bigger than we think ... like the flu. with aches, fever and chills- the flu's a really big deal. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so don't wait. call your doctor right away. tamiflu is prescription medicine for treating the flu in adults and children one year and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing. have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased ris
lucky. this time the october surprise was not a dirty trick but an act of got. hurricane sandy interrupted mr. romney's momentum and allowed mr. obama to look presidential and bipartisan. so let me get this right. the -- mr. romney was soundly beaten both in the popular vote and the electoral college and the swing states that mattered the most? and it was all because of hurricane sandy? >> yeah, i think a less charitable person might be saying "and the dog ate my homework." in the 1980s, karl rove, a young political operative working in a democratic environment put together a memo. he explained how he was going to make the democrat ectexas political establishment a republican electoral gold mine, which he succeeded. in that memo, he wrote the words, when things are going badly, attack, attack, attack. that has always his motif. in this case, things went very, very badly, involving many very wealthy, very influential people, and his reaction is just attack the other guy. >> let me ask you this quickly. you've written two books, you know it very well d this tarnish the brand of k
this opportunity with sandy to get out there and look extremely presidential, to be bipartisan, to kind of wear the mantel of commander in chief in the midst of this national tragedy and they think that that is to their benefit and, of course, people see that and they are playing on that sort of thing, too. he has the advantage of office and it's not to be sneezed at at this stage of the game. >> thank you both for your time tonight. >> thanks, reverend. >> thanks, rev. >>> tonight, a developing investigation into mitt romney's plan to train an army of poll watchers to intimidate and mislead you at the polls. it's a big, important story and we have exclusive new video the romney campaign has been trying to stop you from seeing. >>> also, the gop's freak kout over chris christie. they just can't deal with this praise for the president. and now it's sinking to a new low. >>> and george w. bush has a big october surprise for mitt romney. and he's definitely not going to like it. >>> all of this, plus the great gloria steinem right here on "politicsnation," msnbc. jack, you're a little boring. bori
governor haley barber today and you had karl rove site hurricane sandy as being the thing that one stopped romney momentum but two, could have possibly caused mitt romney to lose the election. we all have to keep in mind that the polls show that this race is tight. even in the swing state polls the president might be leading most of them. but this race is tight. so the fact that the republicans are doing -- playing the blame game, we are not even at election day, tells you the mind-set of the gop and romney campaign. they are not terribly confident about tuesday's election results. >> but nia-malika, what candidate romney is not dealing with, most americans agree, mr. christie, governor christie, said. when you look at a brand new nbc poll, likely voters overwhelmingly say they approve of the president's handling of hurricane sandy. 67% approve. only 16% di disapprove. on top of that, in this brand new poll, majority of americans believe the economy is already turning around. 52% say we are recovering. both of these poll numbers are bad news for the republicans when they only have two days
. they are finding lot of excuses for why things went wrong. they say hurricane sandy caused romney momentum. they say conservatives never liked romney. but this one takes the cake. former political guru, karl rove, says president obama suppressed the vote. amazing. but who's delivering those harsh doses of reality? none other than chris christie. here's what he told reporters when they asked him if he talked to president obama about his big election victory. >> we didn't have a political strategy discussion. i said congratulations on your win, mr. president, and he said thank you, governor, and then we went on to business. >> now, we know chris and the president have been in regular contact, coordinating storm relief. still, it's very nice that christie congratulated the president by phone. but did he give romney a call maybe a shoulder to cry on? >> we sent e-mails to each other yesterday afternoon but we have not spoken but we exchanged e-mails yesterday. >> they exchanged e-mails? the man that romney chose to give the keynote address at the republican national convention has only been in
from hurricane sandy that devastated a huge part of the state and the voters are noticing christie's favorability rating is now at 67%. up 15 points since the storm. you don't see that much in american politics. in a state dominated by democrats, a state the president won by 17 points. the message is clear, voters want action, not blind partisanship. here's what they are saying. do your job, find common ground, do it together. you would think other republicans would be getting the hint. but there's the problem. take a look at the republican so-called leaders who is in charge? who is in charge here? not marco rubio, not the rejected vp candidate paul ryan. bobby jindal is making noise lately but it's not hitch. mitch mcconnell is not it. his speaker john boehner is certainly not this charge. that leads to chris christie and rush limbaugh. the take charge governor who's getting from democrats versus the hard right radio show talk show host. how does this gop movie end? joining me now is melina, contributor to "the grio" and margie omaro. the gop has a real rush problem. how do you se
" conversation on facebook yet? we shared this photo of the president consoling a victim of hurricane sandy during his trip this afternoon through parts of new york. sue said "he gave them what was in his heart. strength, compassion, empathy, and understanding." and rita told us, to "note president obama's leadership. it is not what he says. it's what he does." we want to hear what you think, too. please head over to facebook and search "politics nation" and like us to join the conversation that keeps going long after the show ends. even ragu users ch. prego?! but i've bought ragu for years. [ thinking ] wonder what other questionable choices i've made? i choose date number 2! whooo! [ sigh of relief ] [ male announcer ] choose taste. choose prego. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the market, he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what hap
